Mandy (45) – Desperate for Bahama Mama’s, Lapu Lapu’s and Rose Regale’s
Paul (44) – Desperate for a holiday and some sunshine
Kerry (18) – Desperate for Hollister & Urban Outfitters
Becky (16) - Desperate to meet the Jonas Brothers (I can’t guarantee that one)

August ‘08

The first snippets of planning for 2009 began onboard the Disney Wonder last summer. While having a fab time with ‘The Bahama Mama’s’, we decided that we wanted to take advantage of the rebooking discount and onboard credit. So we booked a 4 night Cruise, 16th/20th August ’09 in a Category 6 on deck 6. We weren’t sure if we’d definitely stick to these dates, but if we changed them, we could take the discount and credit with us

September ‘08

The proper planning of this holiday began the day Travel City Direct went bust :scared1: We were desperately trying to find flights for the New Year, when Paul had a bit of a panic and decided to book our Summer holiday through Virgin at the same time. The economy was starting to go bad, and he decided that if we just paid a deposit for the flights, 2 weeks at the Pop Century and our hire car, then we wouldn’t need to worry about it again till it was due for payment this June

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/MMM120/SANY0061.jpg

We love the Pop Century ::yes:: and hopefully we'll get a room close to the Computer Pool. I'm also looking forward to Tie Dye Cheesecakes and Hula Hoop cocktails

May ‘09

After a bit of an up and down start to the year with hubby’s job, we started to think more positively about our summer holiday, so I decided to stick a little treat in for us ….


And I booked ….


Our final two nights of the holiday at ….


THE POLYNESIAN !!!

Woohoo !!!!!!! I am so excited about staying here, it is somewhere I have always wanted to stay, and I thought it would be a fab way to finish off our trip, especially as Kerry is going away with her friend to WDW in the New Year, and may not want to holiday with us in the near future (and on a lighter note ~ I won’t have too far to stagger back to my room after too many Lapu Lapu’s http://bestsmileys.com/drinking/10.gif)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/MMM120/SANY0352.jpg

Other things I have done this month include ~

Made ADR’s ~
- Crystal Palace
- Tutto Italia (Italian food, wine & Epcot, what more do I need ?? :) )
- Breakfast with Lilo & Stitch (my fave brekkie in WDW)
- We’re also hoping for an early lunch at T-Rex (though I’m not making a ressie)

Got a fairfx card as the dollar rate has started to rise (and let’s hope it keeps rising)

Booked the Travelodge at Manchester Airport for the night before our flight

Paid off our Cruise in time for making our Palo reservations
~ Palo Dinner (6pm on Pirate Night) and we’ll join the girls later in the dining room
~ Palo Brunch (for 10.30am on our Day at Sea)
Paul & I love Palo, and it's so nice to have some 'us' time. The food here is delish and I can't wait to try their yummy Panna Cotta dessert again

Started buying gifts for our Cruise Fish Extender Exchange ~ The FE exchange is so much fun. We've only got 5 families (so far) taking part in the exchange, but it has been lots of fun buying bits and pieces for it

June ‘09

It will soon be time to pay off our Virgin Holiday invoice ( :eek: ouch !!)
Must book our Meet & Greet at Manchester Airport
Buy our 14 night WDW tickets

June/July/August ‘09

I’m going to spend lots of time in the garden to start off my tan, as it’s going to be warm and sunny all summer ;) (well a heat wave has been predicted – :rolleyes:)

Start packing and refrain from buying anymore tops (hmm, that might not be so easy – :rotfl:)

Itinerary

07th - Stay overnight at the Travelodge Manchester
08th - Fly to Orlando & check in at Pop Century/DTD for tickets & Wal-Mart to get supplies in
09th - Epcot (am EMH)
10th - Disney Hollywood Studios (am EMH)

Sounds like a fantastic trip you've planned.

Make the most of your trip with both DD's, I know my Christmas trip will be the last one with eldest DD it's going to be so strange with just one DD next summer.

What a treat to stay at the Polynesian, I'd love to stay there one day.:love:

Finally there is no way I could keep up with you on the cocktails. On our 1st night last year on the Wonder I only had 2 and woke the next day feeling so ill:sick: I must be such a lightweight or maybe I'd just had too much sun :rotfl:

I'll actually believe Kerry's going when I get her on the plane and there's no turning back ::yes::

Now, now Gaynor, surely you're not a lightweight :rotfl2::rotfl2:

It is going to be very strange to leave one of the girls at home. I know it's inevitable, but I would miss Kerry terribly, and then I would feel sorry for poor Becky who will be stuck with a couple of old fogies for a fortnight :confused3 :rotfl:

Great pre-trip Mandy can you take me with you :lmao:

Of course I can, I hope you won't be too cold in the hold :lmao:

great pre trip report.
have a lapu lapu for me, i never got round to getting one this trip :sad2:

Hi Mandy, Your trippie sounds great, look forward to hearing about your stay at the Poly. We arrive on the 20th this year, fingers crossed for no tropical storms, like last year. Can you tell me about the meet & greet at Manchester as we're flying from there this year & still weighing up the options.

We have used Meteor Meet & Greet http://www.airport-parking-quote.co.uk/parking/MAN92-Meteor-Meet-and-Greet.htm though we usually book through APH Parking

They're great, you just ring them about 10 minutes before you arrive (or once you've cleared customs on the way back) and they arrange to meet you at the terminal. You drive up to the terminal, and their chauffeur meets you and takes your car away - easy peasy - HTH :)

Lovely pre trip report Mandy, sounds like you will have another fantastic holiday and I look forward to reading all about it. Are you sure your eldest daughter won't be going with you next year? My two are still coming with us (20 and 18) this year and next, I am hoping they will continue to come for a long time. I know it will be strange leaving one behind and really odd for the sibling without their partner in crime on the holidays.

Sorry Eloise, we've never flown with First Choice before. Years ago we flew from Birmingham Airport, but that was with Air 2000. Sorry I couldn't be more help, and have fun planning your next holiday :)

Bev, I really hope the girls continue holidaying with us in the next few years too, but I think I'm trying to prepare myself for when they would rather have a fortnight in Ibiza, than with the oldies :rotfl2::rotfl2:

:banana::banana: Yay !! Finally the day has arrived .. :banana::banana:

.. but not before I had a bit of a scare last night (just what I needed 24 hours before my hols !!). I had an awful headache, I couldn't look at my laptop screen, as it was too bright, and I felt really sick

Convinced I was coming down with swine-flu, I had an early night, and thank goodness I feel a lot better this morning - phew !!!

I've got a busy day today. I've got to finish off the packing, do on-line check-in and get my nails done this morning .. then hopefully we'll be on our way to Manchester airport around tea-time

After we've checked in at the Travelodge, we'll probably head over to the Trafford Centre for a wander around the shops and a Chinese meal

Roll on tea-time, as my holiday begins the moment we reverse off the drive :) :dance3:
